that that nomination for secretary of state is instead almost certain to go to united nations ambassador susan rice. republicans tried to make into a scandal susan rice's comments after the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. her comments that the attack was thought to be linked to islamist protests rather than an organized terrorist attack. but the administration and the intelligence committee have stepped up to defend her remarks that sunday. and if she is tapped by president obama to replace secretary clinton as secretary of state that would imply that the president is willing to keep backing susan rice up all the way. the current defense secretary is leon panetta. he used to run the cia where he was succeeded by general petraeus. now that seat is also available. the same administration sources talking to "the post" also tell ing that the job is his. the job has made his desire to leave public service, but if he does reconsider, apparently the cia chief job should be his. if mr. brennan decides he does not want the job, the current acting director michael morell looks likely to keep the job.
with the intelligence community here because i can tell you that this all goes to the susan rice comments on sunday morning, where did she get her intelligence? who briefed her? didn't come from the white house. came from the intelligence community, from the cia. >> exactly. mark halperin, you've been watching this. susan rice with -- on "meet the press" and several of the other shows with david gregory on "meet the press" and when she was sticking to the narrative, in part, sticking to the narrative it had been a spontaneous protest that had evolved from the video, that had sparked it in benghazi that led to the tragic deaths of the ambassador and the three others, and that, of course, proved not to be accurate, a lot of tension with the cia over that and there is a suggestion that because there's a strong interest in susan rice being prepared, if the president chooses to nominate her to replace hillary clinton when she steps down, be that they need to clean that up in susan rice's benefit and that there could be some finger pointing at the cia, mark? >> for all the focus on the fiscal cliff and u

to replace panetta at defense and susan rice could be the next secretary of state. rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations who five days after the attack in benghazi went on all the morning shows on sundays and blamed the violence on a movie. we of course know it was a planned terrorist attack. we since learned that the obama administration knew at that point as well. we're talking about that in just a few minutes. >>> first to the big board, we have now turned positive this tuesday morning, up, but not much. up 11. here is our company: david asman joins us. charles payne is here. nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole, start with home depot. now, that's up big, and i want to know why. nicole: home depot is doing really well. the best performer in the dow jones industrials. up over 4 1/2%. they came out with earnings per share and revenue that were better. they have good outlook and said that sandy, the preparations for hurricane sandy and the aftermath, that could help sales also. stuart: nicole, sandy didn't help in the quarter that we're quoting here
to make sure susan rice is nominated by the president, u.n. ambassador to be secretary of state, is that enough to make sure she's confirmed. >> i would be surprised if he nominated susan rice. although she probably would be confirmed, hearings would be a misery, a place where we would see again and again that she was the mouthpiece for a false story about what happened in benghazi. does the administration want to be held hostage to susan rice's overstatements of the case on tv multiple, multiple times. >> i don't know if you have inside information, everything i hear the president wants her to be the next secretary of state. >> she would be a strong nominee, excellent for this job. and if republicans want to go down the road of benghazi making it a political issue, we saw it play out in the campaign, not much success for them, it would be a strategic error to play politics with this issue and try to block susan rice with it. >> what about john kerry, rumored to replace panetta at the defense department. already calling the swift boat activity, saying he threw away his medals fr
right. cbs news has learned that the president is likely to nominate susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. white house sources say the president feels that he should be able to choose the cabinet members he wants, and they say that rice has done a good job on iran and north korea. but rice was the public face of the administration's initial response to the attacks in benghazi, libya, saying that they were prompted by spontaneous protests, not terrorism, and she's come under fire from republicans. when asked about the possibility of rice as secretary of state, senator lindsey graham had this to say on "face the nation." >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi debacle. we need to get to the bottom of it. the president has a lot of leeway with me and others when it comes to making appointments, but i'm not going to promote somebody who i think has misled the country or is either incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. >> reporter: white house sources say these objections a

to something that was just asked. about susan rice. if she was to go before a confirmation hearing -- >> for you i'll break the hypothetical rule. >> nobody 0 else. >> thank you. if she were to go before a senate confirmation hearing could she answer questions with a simple yes? are questions answerable? >> i'm not sure what you're asking, april. again, i'm not going to speculate about personnel matters and who will or will not be participating in nomination hearings. you know, i can tell you that the president believes that ambassador rice has done an excellent job, as the united states ambassador to the united nations, and i believe that -- and i know that he believes that everyone here working for him has been transparent and in the way that we've tried to answer questions about what happened in benghazi and going back to briefings that we had again and again, that the information that we provided was based on the available assessments at the time, and as those assessments evolved and became more detailed and clear we provided additional information, and that was certainly true
could be rumored to be the next defense secretary and susan rice still considered potentially for secretary of state. your thoughts on either of those individuals taking a more prominent role in the president's cabinet? >> let me first say a word in defense of secretary clinton and secretary panetta being in australia. this is for an annual meeting. and i think it is very important that we demonstrate solidarity with the australians the fact they're out of town shouldn't be concerning. on these potential nominations i have to say i have clashed with senator kerry many times over the years on policy you about i have to say in all those years i have never seen him demonstrate the slightest interest in going to the defense department. i think he clearly wants to be secretary of state and, it may be that the president decided he wants susan rice to have that job and he is giving senator kerry the defense department as a consolation prize which would not be a terribly good signal. jenna: ambassador, always nice having you on the program. thank you so much. >> thank you, jenna. rick
are john kerry and u.n. ambassador susan rice, who has been caught up in the questions about benghazi. so if hillary clinton does leave, does that put more pressure on the president to go in a different direction other than susan rice? >> well, i'm only speculating now, because my reporting on this dates back to well before the election when i got a little bit focused there. i will say that if you talk to people in democratic establishment and political establishment on the hill and in national security circles, you do find that neither of those candidates is seen right now as a perfect choice. there are drawbacks to both of them. ambassador rice has a lot of supporters first and foremost, the president to be sure. controversy over her public statements about benghazi give people pause about whether she's the right person with a confirmation process over, whether she's the right person for the job. in the case of senator kerry, there's doubts from some people about whether he'd be the perfect secretary of state. he was passed over four years ago for secretary clinton. if you took him out
of support for her inside the white house, the president will nominate susan rice to succeed hillary clinton instead. but if rice does get nominated she could have a pretty big confirmation battle on her hands. many republicans, including a guy like south carolina senator lindsey graham who normally ends up confirming a lot of the president's appointments, did in the first term, is promising a brutal confirmation pick if rice is picked. >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi debacle. i'm not going to promote somebody i think has misled the country or is incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. there are other people out there. i don't want to fight with the president over something like this, but there has to be an accountability. you just can't let this happen and act as if there are no consequences. >> back to the unfolding scandal surrounding two of the country's most accomplished military leaders of their time. drawing sharp scrutiny from capitol hill, on the "today" show the chairman of the homeland security committee peter king is surpri
, the pentagon. >>> cbs news has learned president obama will likely nominate u.n. ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice may face a tough confirmation process, though. republicans have criticized her response to the september 11th assault in benghazi. rice said it was a spontaneous response to anti-american protests in cairo and not a coordinated attack. >>> congress returns today with an agenda dominated to avoid the so called fiscal cliff, the combination of tax expense increases and spending cuts. president obama meets with top ceos tomorrow to discuss the issue. on friday, mr. obama meets with congressional leaders. >>> new york governor andrew cuomo is asking the federal government for $30 billion in aid to help his state rebuild following hurricane sandy. two weeks after the storm, tens of thousands of customers remain without power in the hardest hit sections of new york and new jersey. some 55,000 of them on long island. cuomo says the long island power company was not prepared and failed to communicate. >> i'm going to do a thorough review/
given to congress and to u.n. ambassador susan rice, to described the events as spontaneous. the cia did sign off on that description for use in tv appearances days after the attack. petraeus said he did not speak with ambassador rice before her tv interviews. he did tell committee members he regrets the circumstances that led to his testimony today. he did not answer questions about his affair. petraeus right now is testifying before the senate intelligence committee. >> margaret brennan, thank you. petraeus is still under a spotlight for the affair that forced him out of his cia job. bob orr is also here in washington with new information on that story. bob, good morning. >> good morning, norah and charlie. fbi officials have told us their investigation into this whole scandal which brought down david petraeus so far has not turned up any threat or damage to national security. but since the affair with paula broadwell occurred while petraeus was the director of the central intelligence agency, the cia's inspector general now has begun his own investigation. sources say the cia is looki

democratic senator john kerry to serve as his next defense secretary. and that susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, would be his top pick to take over as secretary of state for outgoing hillary clinton. >> that means who would come in to replace him in the senate? >> that's the big problem right there. there would be a special election. a lot of people think that republican senator scott brown, outgoing republican senator would be the favorite. that's actually working against senator kerry's nomination for anything because you don't think that the democrats don't want to lose a seat potentially. >> that's what i was saying. >> the man who made sure our computers stay virus-free wanted for questioning in connection with a murder. this thing is a mess, too. john mcafee, of the popular anti-virus software, is in hiding after his neighbor was found shot to death in belize. police say they want to talk to mcafee but right now he is nowhere to be found. >>> republican congressman paul ryan says losing last week's election was quote, a foreign experience. but, in his f
be the next secretary of state, molly. >> reporter: yes, the ambassador susan rice who is now the current u.s. ambassador to the united nation -ts she may succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state over there at state department according to the "washington post." we've heard ambassador rice's name a lot this fall after she appeared on numerous talk shows after the deadly libya attack and repeated the obama administration's position that the attack was the result of a demonstration turned violent and not a terror attack. and we now know that that is not true. rice may face opposition on capitol hill if the president does nominate her as secretary of state. secretary clinton has not said when she's leaving, but she has said in the past that she wants to move on and a state department spokesman said that the secretary quote intends to see through the transition of a successor and then she will go back to private life. martha: so interesting watching all of this move around. senator john kerry for the past month or so, there's been a lot of buzz about him, perhaps as secretary of state, tha
, keeping that in mind, those who talk to me say the following. that u.s. ambassador susan rice has supporters inside the white house to become secretary of state. if she were to go for that job, if she were to be nominated, obviously, she would have a bruising confirmation battle, but people believe she would ultimately get confirmed. do they want that fight is a question and how would that affect the rest of the chess pieces? senator john kerry, who chairs the senate foreign relations committee, has, it's been widely known, long wanted to be secretary of state. if susan rice gets the state nomination, he could be put up for secretary of defense. or not. he says he's right now focused on his job in the senate. another possibility is the president has said he would lake to have a bipartisan cabinet. defense is a good place to put a republican, a republican such as former senator chuck hagel, for example. that's just one name i've heard bandied about. or you could put that person at cia. although the talk is that john brennan, the current homeland security adviser, is the man who cou
. susan rice said the same thing. there is a lot of smoke that should be cleared up. host: ronald kessler, written several pieces about all of this. thank you for being here. the debates over avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff with evan bayh. then we will discuss global reaction to president obama's second term. but first in news update. guest: more on the david petraeus story. the agent that launched the investigation was barred from taking part in the case over the summer because of concerns that he was personally involved in the case. the agent continued to press the matter and relate his concerns to a member of congress. congress returns today and will try to work out how to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. refers to tax increases and spending cuts to defense and domestic problgrams. the issue may not be resolved by year's end. pretty much everyone will be affected if there is no deal. it could throw the economy back into recession and cost no income families about $2,000 more next year. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio.

are mentioning susan rice as somebody for that position. she has been disqualified and disqualified herself by the statements shy made five days after the attack. you need somebody with sound judgment willing to ask tough questions and to all of america this did not seem to be a spontaneous demonstration about a video. it seemed to be a terrorist attack and that is exactly what it turned out to be. jenna: would you support senator kerry as the next defense secretary? >> let's see who the president nominates and we'll go forward from there. i believe senator kerr rewould be confirmed by the senate. jenna: we look forward to hearing from you. i know this is a closed briefing but an important start to a series of hearings over the next several weeks. nice to have you back with us. we look forward to speaking with you again. >> thank you, jenna. rick: gasoline rationing coming to an end in the garden state. governor chris christie in new jersey making that announcement as fema approved $127 million to help families across new jersey rebuild their lives. molly line is live in hard hit sayerville
on september 14th was general petraeus saying it was not a terrorist attack. why did susan rice carry that out. the president can't have it both ways. >> hmm. well, the bitter back and forth continues. the house intelligence committee is holding a closed door hearing on the attack that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. more on the fallout from the libya attack. want to bring in dana bash, and, dana, you have been watching, staking outle intelligence committee hearing. there is reports i guess that there might be a videotape or something. do we know that there is a tape, surveillance tape, that exists of the attack? do we know that? >> well, this comes from our national security correspondent, suzanne, kelly who is reporting that what is going on behind those closed doors. it'seen going, on this t intelligence officials brought with them closed-circumstance yult video which from the compound that was recovered from the compound that, of course, was attacked in benghazi, and they're playing it for these lawmakers and the point, according to suzanne's sources, is to
cain and lindsey graham today come out vehemently against the idea of susan rice becoming secretary of state. there's a whole bunch of questions that this white house would prefer not to be dealing with today. they'd prefer to be talking about the fiscal cliff. i have a feeling they'll be disappointed. >> of course, so far, the story that started with david petraeus is so complex we actually chose to diagram it out last night. there are no new components today but washington will be all riled up with investigations and hearings for the foreseeable future. >> that's right. and there is now talk david petraeus will testify in the next couple of days, either tomorrow or friday, that should loosen, let out some steam. >> chuck todd has to sit down. the president is entering the room. >> good afternoon, everybody. please have a seat. i hear you have some questions for me. but let me just make a few remarks at the top and then i'll open it up. first of all i want to reiterate what i said on friday. right now, our economy is still recovering from a very deep and damaging crisis. so our top priority has to
